Unexpected Things Women Notice In Online Dating Profiles

March 1, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin


By now you know the obvious turn-off’s when it comes to online dating: shirtless photos, five pictures of your dog, leaving half of your profile empty and creating usernames that make you sound like the star of an adult film. But, like in real, non-cyber life, women are also analyzing you far more than you imagined in your online profile. Here’s what they look for.

    Things I notice on online profiles:
    Putting a picture of yourself and your friends without identifying yourself in the picture: Sorry, but I’m not good with guessing games. Please identify yourself. For example, say something like, “I’m the one on the left, wearing the green shirt”.
    Writing in all capital/uppercase letters: Please don’t holler. I can hear you just fine.
    Leaving the About Me section blank/not answering the questions: How can I get to know you if you don’t say anything about yourself?
    Wearing sunglasses in your pictures: Please let me see how nice your eyes look.
    I don’t mind being called a woman or a lady. However, I don’t like being called a “female”.

    Everything on this list! I hate people trashing their exes, using text speak and not smiling the most. If they don’t write anything and all that is in the profile is what the site puts there then i don’t bother. And the guys who have pictures of their stacks of cash ( funniest thing is when the stacks are all ones) or their jewelry are just not doing it for anyone but the hood rats they say they hate. Don’t people read their own profile?

    Selling himself/talking about an ex/flashing. Yes, yes, and YES! Nothing screams He-Man woman-Hater louder than a man who begins his About Me section with what type of woman he DOESN’T want, followed by the kind of woman he deserves/”better come correct”…add that to the same guy who’s also likely to put his $100,000+ salary up, and bash an ex…smh, you just gotta laugh in the end. Esp. when you know you’re exactly the woman he thinks he’s about to catch…

    Boy, BYE!

    Dont forget about men putting pics on profile where he is too casual with his male friends

    often when i see a man too close or touching on several through pics. A nervous energy

    moves thru me suggesting this bro is down low……Big turn off just saying

      Yes, I feel the same way. I really don’t trust men anymore. Men these says cheat with other women and men. Men just lie.
